A Is For....Anniversary Card

Love one another and you will be happy.  It's as simple and as difficult as that.  ~Michael Leunig

An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow.  ~Author Unknown

True love stories never have endings.  ~Richard Bach

You know the older the violin the sweeter the music. ~Curly Putman

I made this handmade card for a special couple who will be celebrating their wedding anniversary this week.

This is how I made the card:

1. I started with a blank kraft cardstock card that measure 5" by 7".

2. I punched the top edge of the card with a Martha Stewart "Loops" paper punch.

3. I chose the background paper from the "Lost & Found" paper pad by My Mind's Eye (2011).

4. I used the Love Birds clear stamp from the "Best Wishes" stamp set from Hero Arts (2013). I stamped the image on a piece of white cardstock and kraft cardstock. I then cut out the white bird bodies and attached them to the kraft cardstock.

5. I cut out the image on the kraft cardstock with a Spellbinders die. I then took a white gel pen and added some faux stitching around the edges.

6. I embellished the card with two stickers (Heart Words #30364) from Splash of Color.

I added a "Love" label that I made with my Dymo label maker.

I am entering this card in the following challenge:
